It is good and seemingly honest book . Lots about cars, guitars, and how he hates mp3 . Not a lot of "Fear and Loathing" type stories . No super big revelations, but a great deal that is interesting, and there is some humor in it .
I recommend it .

I recently read "Waging Heavy Peace" and thought it was very poorly written and annoyingly redundant. Nothing enlightening and little of any substance...driving around in an electric powered 1959 Cadilac...yawn...

“I recently read "Waging Heavy Peace" and thought it was very poorly written”

It absolutely is. However, that's part of what I love about it. It's all over the place, very non-linear, and very far from a traditional autobiography. It is written precisely in the fashion that Neil thinks. This is also kind of how I think, which I why I found it quite refreshing from that perspective. I think the book is a great insight into Neil. No there's no big revelations or anything disclosed by Neil, but he shares plenty of interesting stuff. I'd say he did hammer home his PureTone idea a bit too much. Seemed like that kept popping up and he was indeed being very redundant with that. But, it shows how much it was on his mind and how passionate he is about it. I am certainly excited for the Pono.

yes, waging heavy peace is neil through and through. For a detailed, linear, well written and comprehensive 3rd party biography, I again highly recommend "Shakey".

p.s. And I enjoyed waging heavy peace more than Pete's "Who Are You"....

He would be a music savior if he could get Pono i to go and get a better standard for music audio . But cynic that I am ...
